Domaine de Chevalier 2015

Bordeaux - Pessac-Leognan - White - 13.5° Domaine de Chevalier Domaine de Chevalier 2015 1081/15
  • Parker : 92-94
  • J. Robinson : 18

The 2015 Domaine du Chevalier dry white expresses Semillon and Cabernet-Sauvignon characters without the former vintages classic citrus fruit aromas (grapefruit, lemon). In fact, white and yellow fruits go together in this fine Pessac-Leognan. This aromatic family is one of the fundamental characteristics of this white vintage. This Domaine de Chevalier 2015 displays a golden yellow hue with a green-golden reflection. The crystal-clear aspect of this colour foreshadows a good acidity, which means an obvious freshness. At the olfactory attack, the nose confirms this tension due to acidity and freshness, not to say the fruits aromatic vibrancy. Delicious notes of pear, nectarine, and wild peach seduce already. This wine is elegant, deep, complex, straight and nervous. On swirling, yellow rose petal notes are added to the aromatic spectrum. On the palate, the attack is dynamic. Acidity adds to this Cru Classé from Graves, while bringing power and balance. The mid-palate is full-bodied on yellow fleshed fruits and verbena tea accents in the retro-olfaction, in absolute freshness. Nervousness, which is often a specific of the Chevalier great vintages, is never too far. It is a very savoury wine. Even though it has surprisingly well opened up at this stage, it is far from revealing the entirety of its richness. What a precise wine! 



Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc, which is matured in around 40% new oak, has a refined bouquet with gooseberry, lime, almond and grapefruit aromas, the oak neatly interwoven, gradually unfolding in the glass yet remaining focused. The palate has an almost flinty opening, very edgy but not shrill, a tensile and linear Domaine de Chevalier Blanc that is driven by the acidity, touches of crustacea coming through on the energetic finish. There is a twist of sour lemon and chalk popping up on the aftertaste. This is a great, intellectual, comparatively more reserved white from Olivier Bernard.
